Reconciliation Australia is having great success working with organisations to create Reconciliation Action Plans (RAPs). RAPs are an opportunity for organisations to demonstrate their level of committment to increase the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff, increase cultural awareness and help build the relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous Australians.
Headed by the main body, Reconciliation Australia is an independent, not-for-profit organisation. This organisation has been set up specifically to inspire and enable all Australians to build relationships, respect and trust between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians.
The Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) program provides a framework for organisations to support the national reconciliation movement.
No matter where your organisation is on its reconciliation journey, there is a RAP to suit. Schools and early learning services can develop a RAP through Narragunnawali. Workplaces can be supported to develop one of four types of RAP—Reflect, Innovate, Stretch or Elevate.
A RAP is a strategic document that supports an organisation’s business plan. It includes practical actions that will drive an organisation’s contribution to reconciliation both internally and in the communities in which it operates.
The RAP Program contributes to advancing the five dimensions of reconciliation by supporting organisations to develop respectful relationships and create meaningful opportunities with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Each of the four RAP types (Reflect, Innovate, Stretch, Elevate) set out the minimum elements required from your organisation to build strong relationships, respect and opportunities within your organisation and community.
Schools and early learning services can develop a RAP through Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in Schools and Early Learning.
Narragunnawali supports all schools and early learning services in Australia to foster a higher level of knowledge and pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions.
The Narragunnawali platform is free to access and hosts a wealth of learning and curriculum resources to support the development, implementation and management of RAPs in schools and early learning services.
